Van Gogh Paintings
For the Bar Harbor 2012 Fashion Night Out event, I partnered with textile artist Deb DeForest and we celebrated the art of Vincent Van Gogh, one of my favorite artists.
I reproduced five of Van Gogh’s pieces, and Deb created stunning painted silk scarves, buttons, and pillows with sunflowers, stars, poppies and other Van Gogh images. Van Gogh himself inspired this theme as he also recreated the works of other masters.
Producing these paintings was pure joy, although it was more difficult than I would have expected, especially since I painted them exclusively with a knife. However, it was a great learning experience and I now have an even greater appreciation for his genius.
Here are photos of my five paintings.
